An incredible find. WWII German propaganda posters are very hard to find. This piece is in very good condition for being 80 years old. It features creases from when it was originally folded to be mailed (during the war), some damage to the corners, and a few very small areas of water damage. Overall, the poster still exhibits strong coloration. Measures approximately: 47”x 33”
